Need help staying under budget

GamingX10

http://pcpartpicker.com/list/8pp9KZ Is there anyway to make this build a little bit cheaper without losing too much power? Also, if anything sticks out that might not be fully compatible with something else please let me know. This is mostly a gaming build for open world games such as skyrim.

It looks all right, though you could get cheaper RAM, e.g:

GeIL EVO POTENZA 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR4-2133 Memory for $38.98.

Also, I'd use Ethernet cable connection over WiFi any day. It's more reliable, the latency is lower and costs less (just the price of the cable if you don't have one already at hand.)

Looks pretty good to me. Not sure where you can save much money, maybe hold out and wait for some sales on components? I agree with WiFi, unless you just can't go ethernet ditch the wifi card.
